Announcer

Chad - A kid who inherited a candy factory

Willy Wacko - A candy genius

ANNOUNCER: Did you see the movie about the kid who inherited the chocolate factory? Did you ever wonder how it went for that kid after he went to work at the factory? Well, wonder no more! Now you can see what its like to be the heir of a candy fortune in the new series: Chad and the Candy Factory!

Chad enters with the plate of gum drops.

CHAD: Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, I am in trouble! Oh, when Mr. Wacko finds out what I did, he is going to dip me in chocolate and toss me out the window! Oh my goodness, oh my

WILLY: (off stage)Chad? Chad, where are you?

CHAD: Im not here! Aw, man!

Willy enters.

WILLY: There you are! Oh, I see you found the gum drop machine!

CHAD: Why would you say that?

WILLY: Well, I see youre holding a plate of gum drops, so I just put two and two together.

CHAD: Oh these? These arent gum drops.

WILLY: Yes they are. Theyre Wackos Wonder Drops. Id recognize them anywhere. Let me try one.

CHAD: No! Please dont, Mr. Wacko.

WILLY: Why not? You know I love my gum drops.

CHAD: Yes, well, when I made this batch, I kind of messed up.

WILLY: Uh oh, did you accidentally hit the cherry flavor lever instead of the strawberry? I told you, cherry is green, not red.

CHAD: No. Yes. Well, its a little more complicated than that.

OBJECT LESSON

ITEMS NEEDED:

A plate of homemade chocolate chip cookies

Were starting a new series about candy. Every week were going to talk about a different kind of candy. So why, you must be wondering, do I have a plate of homemade, delicious chocolate chip cookies?

Aside from the fact that cookies, like candy, are sweet and delicious, these cookies in particular have something to teach us. What shape are cookies supposed to be? Theyre circles, arent they? But can you spot a single cookie in this batch thats a perfect circle?

Cookie makers like Keebler and Nabisco make round cookies all day because they use machines. Imperfect people make imperfectly round cookies. But even though these cookies look imperfect, theyre still cookies, and they are still delicious. I mean, even though these cookies are not perfectly round, you would eat them, wouldnt you?

We were made by Gods hands. We are not perfect because we are sinful, and yet God loves us perfectly. He sent his son to die for us so he could forgive our sins. No matter how bad we mess up, God still loves us.

These cookies arent perfect, but that doesnt mean we cant enjoy them. We are not perfect, but that doesnt mean God doesnt love us. He loves you just as you are, and he always will!

LARGE GROUP GAME

 

PERFECT TEN

ITEMS NEEDED:

A kidsbasketball hoop and ball

INSTRUCTIONS:

Choose one player for this game. Put sixty seconds on a clock, and give that player sixty seconds to shoot hoops. The goal in this game is to make ten baskets in a row. Start counting when the shooter completes the first basket, and see if he can get to ten. If he misses one, start over.

VARIATION:

Instead of having one kid try to make ten in a row, choose three kids and see who can make the most shots in a row.

WHATS THE POINT?

Jesus loves us even when we are not perfect.  

LARGE GROUP LESSON

BOTTOM LINE:

God loves us even when we mess up.

OBJECTIVE:

Kids will be able to label specific sins that they commit and state that God can forgive them.  

KEY PASSAGE:

Psalm 139:1-18, We Are Fearfully And Wonderfully Made

INTRO:

When people create candy, they usually try to give those candies names that are happy and exciting. Names like Snickers, Milky Way, Skittles, Sweetarts, Starburst, and Twizzlers sound fun when we hear them. Who wouldnt want a treat named that?

But there are some candies that have some very dull, boring, and peculiar names. Lets talk for a moment about M&Ms. Yes, we all know M&Ms are fun and chocolatey, but M&Ms? Really? Two letters and the symbol for the word and? Not exactly a fun, kid-friendly name, is it?

And how about Whatchamacallit? Isnt that an odd name for a candy bar? Imagine your friend asks you, Hey, what are you eating?and you answer, Whatchamacallit?Then they answer back, Thats what Im asking you!Sounds like a candy perfectly named to cause fights among friends.

Todays candy is one of those with a name that makes you scratch your head. Im talking about Milk Duds. Is there any candy with a more unfortunate name than Milk Duds? When you hear the word dudyou think of a movie that disappointed you, or a firework that doesnt explode. And the sad truth is, Milk Duds were named because they were a disappointment. The man who invented the milk chocolate covered candies wanted them to come out round, but they all kept coming out odd shaped. For that reason he named them duds.

Its easy for us to feel like duds sometimes. We, like Milk Duds, are not perfect. We mess up. We do things we know were not supposed to do. We can feel like weve failed. But the good news is God loves us just as we are. Even when we mess up, he is crazy about us.

READ PSALM 139:1-18

MAIN POINT:

Psalm 139 was written by David. David, the Bible tells us, was a man after Gods own heart, but David was not perfect. David made some big mistakes in his life, and those mistakes cost him and his family dearly.

David says in this psalm that God knows whats in his heart. He knows whats in all of our hearts because he made us. God knows what we are going to do or say before we even act or speak, and theres nothing we do that escapes his notice. Yet in spite of the bad thats in our hearts, God is still looking out for us. He loves his children, and theres no place we can go that hes not looking out for us.

We may not be duds, but were not perfect people either. God still loves us because he made us, and nothing we can say or do will change that.

DRIVE IT HOME:

I told you a few moments ago how Milk Duds got their name. Its not a flattering name, but that doesnt mean Mild Duds themselves are a disappointment. Milk Duds are bite-sized bits of caramel coated in milk chocolate, and for fans of chocolate and caramel, they are a real treat. They may no be perfectly round, but Milk Dud fans wouldnt change a thing.

Thats how God feels about us. God made us and wanted us to be perfect, but he knows that we live in a world of sin. We are all born with a selfish, self-centered heart, and we all have broken Gods commands.

Yet in spite of our mistakes, we are loved. God loves is even though we lie. He loves us even though we disobey our parents. He loves us when we are jealous or hateful or disrespectful to others.

God wants us all to do better. He gave us the Bible, our parents, and our pastors to teach us right from wrong, and he gives us his Holy Spirit to guide our lives. But God doesnt expect perfection. He knows were going to mess up, and when we do, and he still loves us.

Milk Duds may not be perfect, but theyre loved by those who enjoy chocolate and caramel. We are not perfect, but we are loved by the God who made us. No matter what youve done or will do, God loves you. You are not duds in his eyes!

CLOSE WITH A SIMPLE PRAYER:

Dear God,

Thank you for loving us, even when we mess up.

In Jesusname,

Amen
